Easy Cheesy Mexican Casserole

“This goes together quickly and then bakes for about an hour. This recipe can be taylored to your own tastes quite simply. You can vary the flavors by using different chili powders, beans, cheese blends or Dorito flavors. It's easy to control the heat level by which Ro-tel you use. If you don't like it hot replace the jalapenos with mild green chilies.”
